Guys, I have a quick question. What size bolts are used to hold the swing arm skid plate on? I dont have the tool to measure the hole so I thought I would ask the experts. Note, this is an aftermarket swingarm skid plate. I came off the other day while I was riding so, I'm looking to put it back on with some lock tight

Thanks for you help!

They're 10mm head but I have no idea on the thread size and all that.

That said, locktite on skid plate bolts doesn't work in my experience, they'll fall off again... and again.. and again. If you want to fix the problem for good, go buy a tube of "The Right Stuff" from Permatex and dip the screw in it before you screw it in. It will never fall off, but it will still be pretty easy to unscrew if you ever need to.

This stuff is amazing and has a million use.

your right

Thanks, that's a start. Your right about it comming off over and over again. This is like the third time I have had to put it on The 2nd time I dont think I used the right bolt because it only stayed on like 20 min into the ride but I must say it was a very rocky 20 min ride
